What is a Dynatrace process?
Dynatrace Process is a comprehensive performance monitoring and management solution that provides insights into the behavior and performance of software processes in complex IT environments. It allows organizations to gain real-time visibility into the entire process landscape and proactively optimize application performance.
While the Dynatrace user interface is excellent and offers interesting features, the integration into ServicePilot of the Dynatrace Process package allows for true correlation of processes with the underlying infrastructure (storage, networks, ...) as well as both automatic and customizable mappings/topologies. The use of the ServicePilot interface in hypervisor mode also offers numerous data analytics interfaces with dashboards, flexible custom queries, PDF reports, simple and complex alerts, among others.
How to monitor a Dynatrace process?
ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor a Dynatrace process requiring only the installation of a ServicePilot Agent along with minimal configuration on the target server. A resource of the appmon-dynatrace-process package then needs to be added via the ServicePilot web interface.
This gathers per Dynatrace-process statistics including:
- CPU utilization
- Memory usage
- Process counts
- CPU suspension times for Garbage collection
How to install a dynatrace-process resource?
- Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
- Add a new dynatrace-process resource via the web interface (
/prmresources) or via API (
/prmpackagespage), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.
Details of the dynatrace-process package are located in the
/prmpackagespage of the software.
ServicePilot enables you to deliver IT services faster and more securely with automated discovery and advanced monitoring features.
By correlating the technology DYNATRACE PROCESS with APM and infrastructure monitoring, ServicePilot is able to provide a more comprehensive view of an organization's IT environment.
This allows IT teams to quickly identify and diagnose issues that may be impacting application performance, and take corrective action before end-users are affected.
